: We're very good friends with the couple across the street. They have a 2.5 year old and a 1 year old and it's nice to take our 1.5 year old Hannah over to play with them. So we planned to get together tonight and eat pizza. We get over there and their youngest is sitting around as usual. His nose is running a bit, but I don't think anything of it since kids just have snotty noses sometimes. After hanging around for a bit I hear how congested he is. It turns out he's nursing a cold. Hannah was poking at him and even took food from his plate at one point in the evening. I'm certain I'm going to wake up to find she's got his cold.
: I don't know what you folks do, but if Hannah is sick we warn people before they bring their kids over. I'm pretty irritated at this whole thing.
I have to agree! I warn anyone coming near our child, when he is sick. Because there are many illnesses that can be prevented. It is ignorant to let others catch them so easily.
